Mr. Bullion--Our Candidate If many Arkansas voters at this stage are confused, it is understand. able. We wonder how many newspaper editors could answer, in 25 seconds or less, "Who are the candidates for lieutenant governor?" or, "List, by position number, the candidates for Supreme Court." About the most help we can offer on lieutenant governor is that Joe Basoi'e was in the office recently and is well met, and Footsie Britt was e. great football player and an even greater war hero. This brief piece is to deal with a .candidate for one of these positions (which might be called a "lesser" position, but which actually is nothing of the sort). He is Bruce Bullion. He is from Little Rock and he is a candidate for Supreme Court Position No. Four. . He is not running against John Fogleman or Howard Cockrill, whom we also commend to you. The only issue in Mr. Bullion's race is a matter of personal qualifications for a seat on the highest court of this state. Mr. Bullion has been engaged in the practice of law 28 years. He at. tended Little Rock Junior College, Washington and Lee and is a graduate of the University of Arkansas Sehool of Law. He's a past president of th« Arkansas Bar Association. He has chaired the Association's executive committee and has served in the usual civic and church capacities a community leader it expected to fill. During World War II, he was a cap. tain and when he departed Okinawa for the United States, clusters of enlisted men were on the beach to bid him farewell. Doubtless this has happened before, but it marked a "first" for many a GI during that war. This incident probably in no way figures in Mr. Bullion's ample qualifications to serve on your Supreme Court, but it does go a long way in telling you what kind of man he is. Remember Bruce Bullion's name July 26. Claiming 'Our' Dorothy We wouldn't know Dorothy Germain if she walked in the front door with a five iron in her hand, but we think it's simply wonderful that her family moved here and that she obviously is one of Amreica's foremost women golfers. This is a windfall for Bly- theviile, a city which had nothing to do with her development as a "prima gojfa." Through a happy circumstance, her father Jack Germain, came to this city about a year ago to become one of the top-echelon executives at Arkansas- Missouri Power Company. While the city and the Ark-Mo service area got a pleasant gentleman and a competent executive, it turns out that it may have received also a budding celebrity. For the better part of two weeks, Miss Germain kept Blytheville's name on the nation's sports pages. First, sh« was co-medalist and eventual winner Of the consolation flight at the Women's Intercollegiate Golf Tournament at Ohio State University and then this past week she won the prestigious Broadmoor Women's InvitationaJ at Colorado Springs. With the National Women's Amateur, these tournaments are the elite of amateur female golf- dom. It would be entirely appropriate if the Chamber of Commerce or the City of Blytheville had a modest luncheon in her honor to recognize the fact that this young lady during her short residence has brought recognition to the to the town unmatched since the days when J. B. Whitworth, the Mosleys et al were running out to Pasadena every January to play in the Rose Bowl for Alabama. Show Beat Dick Kleiner " BIOSATT AND CKOMlfY IN WASHINGTON l Price of China's A-Bomb i- j Is Political Dissention Of OtU Brevity Is The Word Custodians of the national archives in Washington to save filing space, have been campaigning for years to get government letter writers to say it simply and briefly. That's fine, but it will be surprising if the campaign ever succeeds. The common redundancies and superfluities of the language have become too much of a habit. If the reader disbelieves, let him sit down and write a letter. Then let him see how many times he has mentioned "the present incumbent" or the "varied assortments." How often he engages in repetition." Improvement will be obvious if a government bureau ever sends a letter stating: "The answer to your inquiry is 'No.' " A usual form is: "In reply to your Inquiry, we regret to inform you that our answer cannot be in the affirmative."

This was a pretty strong duplicate game and at eight of the 13 tables South responded one spade and wound up going down one at a two spade contract after North rebid one no-trump passed at two spades. These South players were all Itjcky in their choice of partners. There are some players who might have treated the two spade rebid as forward going and found a further bid witb North's cards, but these Norths respected the two spade call as a sign off and passed.

WASHINGTON (NEA) Red China's rulers may have Daid a greater price than they magined for their nuclear ex- jlosions. That is, there may be a partial tie-in between Communist China's atom bomb development and tiie political dissension in hat country. The production of these atbm- c blasts was so important to Mao Tse-tung in his psychological • propaganda war for con- ;rol of Asia that he was forced to turn to and lean heavily on scientists who had been trained in the United States, Britain and other free nations of t h e West. His top nuclear scientists were so trained. In file earlier period of the regime, these Western - schooled Chinese scientists, witb their emphasis on facts and their skepticism concerning propaganda, had been mistrusted. Being mistrusted, they had been allowed to work but had from the Russians. His own supply of home • grown and educated scientists did not have young Chinese science students from getting Western thoughts. The Western influence was al- the maturity for imaginative nu- ready so strong by 1958 that clear development. Peking launched a national cam- clear development. So the Red Chinese turned more to Western science. They began teaching their young scientists Engish instead of Russian. They began to study American scientific literature. Scientists from northern European countries were invited to lecture. Students began going to selected Western countries. As the regime sought to build the bomb and rockets and to train a new generation of scientists, it finally had to rely upon the outstanding Western- trained scientists — men from Massachusetts Institute of Tech- paign in the colleges and universities against the bourgeois viewpoint. The atomic work was done under the Western influence. The successful nuclear explosion's were exploited to the full by the Peking government. It was impossible to completely discredit the men who made them possible. » » « The new knowledge of t h e power of science and of nuclear weapons has created among some knowledgeable Chinese a deeper understanding of the HOLLYWOOD (NEA) Jtck Valtnti, President John•on's former aid* who Is the new president Of the Motion Picture Association of America, made his first visit to Hollywood sine* his appointment. At a press conference, he impressed the Hollywood reporters with his wit and ability to turn a neat phrase. But some of us were troubled by his announced determination to make his home and office in Washington. He said, in fact, that that was one of his demands before he accepted the job. Since Uiere is very little motion picture production in Washington, Valenti is obviously an absentee president. It makes as much sense for the movie industry to have a president living in Washington as it woud if President Johnson decided to live in Hollywood. Questioned about the MPAA code and the morality of films Valenti revealed a witty liberal ism. "Morality," he said, "is i wide and variable phrase. Al tastes are different. Maybe ev eryone doesn't want to read The Bflbbsey Twins. Maybe some of them want to read Kafka's "The Trial.' Legends grow up around Hoi lywoed stars and often fcey are wrong. One such — which I al ways accepted as true — wa the story that Barbara Stan wyck went to Erasmus H a 1 High School in Brooklyn. When I was an Erasmus student, i was considered fact that Mis Stanwyck was one of our mos distinguished alumni. Barbara says that she didn' — in fact, she never went tc high school at all. She went tc work right after graduating from grammar school. "But that legend got aroum so much," she says, "that ther is even a plaque in Erasmu saying I went there. And I'v had people come up and intro duce themselves and say, 'I wa in your class at Erasmus.'

These men see Red China slipping further behind the West. They see file country ruled by men whose technical thinking and knowledge is low and whose understanding of the West Is slight and fantastically twisted. Their ideas are rubbing off on others.

What strength should be used? A _ If you use a household hypochlorite such as Clorox, one teaspoon to a gallon of water is the recommended concentration. Observe the warnings about fabrics tivst can't be treated in this way. Some authorities believe that thorough washing with a detergent follow, ed by rinsing in plain water is just as effective. Q — Five different doctors have said I have a nervous stomach. Is this serious? What treatment would you recommend? A — A nervous stomach or gastric neurosis may be due to different causes. Some emotional difficulty, such as financial worries, an unhappy home life, an unsympathetic boss or anxieties that started in childhood, is usually the underlying cause. The condition is not serious but may be very hard to get rid of. For this reason your doctor may want to reassure you, give you gome fatherly advice about rearranging your life, and prescribe medicines to calm your nerves and relieve your slomacii »ymploms, Written for Newspaper Enterprise Association Jy Wayne G. Brandstadt, M.D. Q _ My husband was hospitalized for several weeks with "antral gastritis and prolapsed stomach." Aside from giving him a bland diet what can we do to prevent a recurrence? A — Antral gastritis is an Inflammation of the stomach at its antral or lower end. A prolapsed or so-called fallen stomach is a normal finding in a tall thin person and has no clinical significance. Once the gastritis is cured, thorough chewing of one's food and relaxed peaceful surroundings at mealtime are more important than a strictly bland diet. Q — Is it necessary to have surgery for hemorrhoids that bleed occasionally? Could the bleeding be a symptom of caner? A — Keeping the stools soft is usuaty caused by an infection. Pyylorospasm is a spasmodic contraction of the outlet of the stomach that is usually congenital. It may cause the stomach to empty more slowly than normal.

There may be one good result of rock 'n' roll after all. Tommy Leonetti says today's music has cut the racketeers out of the picture. If you remember, Tommy's name came up in the '60 Senate racket investigation, in connection with his management at that time. Today, he's handled jy one of the best in the busines Dick Linke, who manages Andy Griffith and Jim Nabors. But Tommy knows from sad experience about the influence of Ihe rackets on music. ' "There is little or no connection between the rackets and music today," he says. "It flourished mostly when singers could be made overnight by the right night club exposure and a racketeer could buy the right night club exposure. "But, in the music market today night club exposure is unimportant. What makes a singer today are records and radio exposure, and they're hard for racketeers to buy. I don't think there's a contemporary singer today who is racket-controlled." Tommys own clean-cut career is coming along. He's recording for RCA these days, appearing at top clubs,d o 1 n g some television work and acting. He appeared frequently on Jim Nabors' Corner Pyle series and he hopes to do more this coming season. Happily, Tommy believes that the era of good singers singing good songs is coming back, and he believes there are many good lasting tunes coming out of this rock 'n' roll era songs like "Yesterday" and "Michelle, for example. Its only the racketeers whl long for the good old days.
